I have a client who do not have cgi enabled. How do I upgrade his account to enable cgi. It seems even if I upgrade his account to a package which supports cgi, WHM do not change CGi enable status. I am using WHM 5.0.0 and have only reseller access (not root access).
I think the only way that you can do this is to delete the account than recreate it with cgi enabled.
Alternatively you could manually edit apache and cpanel config files, but you definitely cannot do this unless you have root. Best bet is to contact your host and see if they can do this for you without deleting the account.
